Brisbane is one of the best cities to visit in Australia, often being praised for its cheery atmosphere and pleasant weather. On top of this, there’re a number of bustling markets you can visit and explore here. So, here’s a closer look at Brisbane’s lively markets.

Jan Powers Market

This a true icon among the Brisbane market scene, known primarily for bringing in fresh produce to marketgoers every week. The market itself is open at four locations – Brisbane City Markets on Wednesday, Brisbane Powerhouse on Saturday, and a couple of sub-urban spots on the first and third Saturday of each month. This means that this market is a quick visit for those staying at one of the centrally located hotel apartments Brisbane has to offer – say, for example, the Oaks Brisbane Lexicon Suites.

The Designers Market

Held on Little Stanley Street by the South Bank on the first Sunday of every month, The Young Designers Market is essentially a showcase of the talent and skill of the city’s aspiring artists. You’ll find various types of works here – from classical reimagining to bold and innovative pieces of art.

Boundary Street Markets

Found along Brisbane’s West End on the weekends, the Boundary Street Markets are a cheery selection food stalls that all serve up some delectable Australian grub. There’s a great selection of international flavours as well, from far-off Greece to Venezuela.
